All good things must come to an end, and Amazon’s current Gaming Week sale will close out in just a couple of days time. The event is scheduled to end on Sunday May 5, so we’d recommend getting in on some of these record-low prices sooner rather than later. 

We’re seeing plenty of discounts across some of the biggest brands in gaming hardware this weekend. Things generally seem to be centered around the PC crew, with particularly strong discounts on keyboards, mice, and headsets. However, console and handheld lovers can also get in on the action. There are plenty of Nintendo Switch accessories with record-breaking savings up for grabs right now, like the Nitro Deck down to $44.99 (was $59.99) and the mClassic upscaler at $84.99 (was $99.99) to boot. 

We’ve scoured those shelves for the best and brightest offers in this year’s Amazon Gaming Week sale. That means you’ll find all our favorite discounts on the tech we love just below.

Buy it if:

When will Amazon Gaming Week end?

The current Amazon Gaming Week sale will officially close out on Sunday May 5, likely at midnight. That means you’ve only got a couple more days to take advantage of this sale - your next chance at savings will be Memorial Day at the end of the month.  

Should you wait for Prime Day?

As they do with any Amazon sale, the threat of upcoming Prime Day offers loom large. The summer sale, exclusively for members, generally kicks off around the second week of July so we do have a little wait until then. We’re not exactly expecting this year’s Prime Day gaming deals to significantly better than the offers we’re enjoying at the moment, though. Rather, the scope of discounts will be much wider. If you’ve had your eye on any of the above tech for some time, we’d recommend jumping in - it probably won’t be much cheaper later in the year. However, if you’re still holding out on a gadget that isn’t included in this round of discounts we’d certainly suggest holding out.  

Of course, we’re also rounding up all the latest PS5 deals and top Nintendo Switch deals - or take a look at this week’s gaming laptop deals for heavier discounts.
